There's no reset button. But TI calculators have an annoying habit of dimming the screen when the batteries are changed so that it appears as if the calculator isn't turning on. Turn the calculator on (or at least press the ON key). Press and release the 2ND key. Press and hold the Up-arrow key for a few seconds and see whether the screen becomes legible.

If that doesn't work, remove all four AAA batteries. Press and hold the ON key for ten seconds. Replace the batteries and turn the calculator on. (You may have to adjust the screen as described above.)

If that doesn't work, please append a comment to this post and we'll go on from there.

Sharp el 9300c


I took the EL-9300 apart to look for cold solder joints on the battery terminals. Found no bad connections. Make sure you remove all retaining screws.
Cleaned the pc board under the reset button. Cleaned the board under the slide switch that is actuated by the metal battery hold down clip. When you go to turn on the calculator install the hold down clip because it makes a connection to the pc board.
When I pushed the "On" button I got a down arrow. Push the "Reset" button when you get the down arrow. Various menus came up and I managed to reset the calculator.

TI 83 Plus won't turn on after battery change


I was having the same problem...I found the info below on another blog and it helped me fix my calculator problem. Take out all the batteries, hold the DEL button and put the batteries back in (keep holding the DEL button until all batteries are put back in). This will restart the calculator and restore it to its default settings...but it makes it work again!

"Reflashing the OS is probably the thing to do now. I think there's some trick that throws the calc into OS receiving mode. Hold down DEL while putting the batteries in? I don't remember if that's it. Go to 1-800-TI-CARES/ti-cares@ti.com if you need specifics on getting the calc to take an OS upload given the state it's in."

First time used in months


Check the batteries polarity.
Perhaps it needs a "reset", some calcs do have a "button" therefor, some do if you press the start button for some seconds.
Try to leave the calc overnight without any batt. inside.

My Ti83 silver edition will not turn on.


I'm not sure if this will help you patchesb7; it sounds like your calculator is having issues :(
This will help others whose calculators suddenly won't turn on anymore, even after changing the batteries.

Note:
This will return the calculator to the way it was when you got it out of the package. Any data or programs have stored since will be lost.

Step 1: Remove all four AAA batteries.

Note: You will have to hold down the CLEAR button while doing Steps 2 and 3. Do not let go until after you have pushed ON in Step 3. I found this easiest to do by holding the calculator upside in my left hand with my pointer finger holding the CLEAR button so the ON button was easier to access.

Step 2: Hold down the CLEAR button (located under the arrow keys) and reinstall the AAA batteries.

Step 3: Press ON button and then let go of both buttons. The screen should say the RAM has been cleared. Press CLEAR to continue.

None of my buttons work except the ON button


Sounds like a possible short to me, But I don't have experience with that cause I have yet to test my calc with water if you know what I mean... The one thing that I can suggest is trying to connect with another persons calc and try the "send OS" command to see if that will reset your calc to a working state. Sorry to hear about the damage though.
